This site is outdated! The dotScene format, OgreFSRad and OgreLMTSConvert can now be found in OGRE's OgreAddons package/CVS.

I'm lucky that dotScene is getting used more and more in a variety of tools and applications, naturally mostly OGRE related.

What does it do ?

A note on converting back and forth

There are three different kinds of .lmts files. They share the same file format though.
You run LMgen with a commandline looking like this (general form): LMgen .
LMgen then expects an existing .1.lmts file as the input file.
It will then create an intermediate .2.lmts.
Running LMpack will create the final file containing lightmap information. Its name has the form (you probably guessed it): .3.lmts.

LMTSConverter converts any of these .lmts file into an Ogre mesh as there is no difference regarding the file format.

If you convert a .lmts file into a .mesh file the .mesh file will include limited material information (texture and lightmap names). If you convert such a file into a .lmts file again any lightmap texture information will be removed. Essentially you will then have your type 1 .lmts file again (.1.lmts) which means that you will have to run LMgen and LMpack again.

If you think this note isn't clear enough you can mail me.
